Early Learning Academy
- We are incorporating all Government of Alberta guidance into our operations to keep our staff and students safe (link to GoA guidelines below)
- Modified drop-off/pick-up protocol to align with physical distancing.
- Enhanced cleaning protocols
- Small Class sizes (6 children max per class @ Callaghan; 12 children max per class @ Chappelle and Ambleside)
- Strict say-at-home protocols for those who are feeling unwell including staff and students
- encouraging physical distancing where possible and creating cohorts
- Masks are required for staff
- Masks are optional for students
(At this age, it may not be feasible for children to wear a mask, so it is up to the discretion of Parents)
- Health questionnaire and screening to be completed for each child at drop off. This can be completed prior to drop-off as forms will be made available to speed up the drop-off process. (link to the questionnaire below)
- Children undergo contactless temperature checks at drop-off prior to entering the building.
- Staff are also required to fill out the questionnaire and check their temperature prior to beginning their shift each day.
- Hand washing upon children entering and exiting the facility and as needed throughout the day
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitization throughout the day
- Individual packages for each child that contain games and activities. Most child care centres have toys, activities, games, and materials that are shared among the children. We have actually created individual packages for each student to limit the number of 'shared' touch surfaces.
- Each child will also have their own dedicated pencil box for their own supplies (things like crayons, pencils, erasers, scissors).
- Modified lessons/games/activities that help mitigate the transmission of COVID or other types of infectious viruses.
Back to School time! This is the most crayons we have ever had at the centre!
New COVID protocols in place: Each student will be receiving their very own pencil box full of supplies including crayons, scissors, glue sticks, erasers and more!
We will NOT be compromising the integrity of our program as we have creative solutions in place to implement our curriculum safely :)
